Alyssa's Law requires each public elementary and secondary school building to be equipped with at least one panic alarm that is directly linked to local law enforcement authorities. This addresses the issue of response time in emergencies.
Alyssa Alhadeff’s Story
Alyssa Alhedeff was a 14-year old student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland Florida. She was a victim on February 14, 2018 when a former student killed 17 people in a mass school shooting.
Legislation was expedited in the wake of the tragedy and the final version of the law was named in Alyssa’s memory.
Where is the Alyssa's Law in effect?
New York, New Jersey, and Florida have versions of Alyssa's Law already in effect, with pending legislation in Nebraska, Arizona, Texas, and Virginia. There are similar laws introduced at the federal level, which could make Alyssa's Law applicable to all states.
